The loose cannon DNC Chair is at it again, mouthing stupidities. Via JournOlister Ben Smith of Politico:
…now you have the Republicans, who want to literally drag us all the way back to Jim Crow laws and literally – and very transparently – block access to the polls to voters who are more likely to vote Democratic candidates than Republican candidates. And it’s nothing short of that blatant.
It is old hat for Democrats to accuse Republicans of racism. But where are the GOP proposals to actually pass new Jim Crow laws, enforcing legal segregation in schools, restaurants, transit, drinking fountains, and the like. That is exactly what DWS accuses them of doing.
She also accuses Republicans of wanting to be obvious about blocking access to polls.
Obviously Dim Bulb Debbie does not understand the difference between “figuratively” and “literally.” Peter Wehner of Commentary noticed this last week, but even this helpful reminder failed to make an impression on the DNC chair or anyone with access to her. As Peter put it: “For some of us Wasserman Schultz’s answers are figuratively, if not literally, like fingernails scratching a chalkboard.”
Some folks in ObamaLand are talking about a new stimulus bill. Read on:
Obama’s first stimulus plan cost around $800 billion and change. You are hard pressed to find an economist who will tell you that this $800 billion played any meaningful role in an economic recovery. Remember Dear Ruler telling us that if we didn’t have the stimulus bill unemployment would remain above 9%. Were you paying attention on Friday? Unemployment is still above 9%.
Let me tell you how this stimulus plan was developed. It’s just this simple: Obama comes into office with a mandate to do something to bring us out of the recession and to get people working again. There was a problem though. Obama had no clue what to do. He had no experience he could draw upon to develop a recovery plan. He did have a mindset though, and that mindset was that government is good and the private sector is bad, so whatever was to be done had to strengthen government and involve the private sector only to the degree absolutely necessary. So Obama went to Nancy Pelosi and simply told her to get the Democrat caucus together and instruct them to dust off any and all spending plans they’ve been proposing or considering over the past few years and put them into a giant spending bill. Keep it under one trillion dollars, and we’ll present it to the people as a stimulus bill. Whether or not it really contributes to an economic recovery will be beside the point. The plan will give Democrat members of congress the ability to go to the voters in their home districts with “Look at the money I brought back to our district” newsletters and speeches.
June 6th, 1944, D-Day, is something our current media tends to forget.
The 82’nd and 101’st Airborne were the first to land in the wee hours, to secure vital
bridges and towns. They landed in swamps, fields that were setup to take out landing aircraft and paratroops, in trees, and towns, armed with guns to shoot them down and without any support.
Beaches like Charlie, Dog, Easy, Fox, and Utah were well prepared against the incoming assault.
Yet we prevailed. We did not give up or retreat. Under machine guns, mortar fire and grenades we continued to advance.
Let us give our thanks to those who have given the utmost sacrifice … their lives, as well as those who were wounded and those that managed to survive this most historic event that spelled the turning point in World War II!
